last of the birds??!!??!!?

probably not, but this is the last of the ones i did before moving onto larger greater things

also watching Bill Baileys bird watching bonanza, its maybe the best show ever.


just got back from the library where i scanned some of my work from my sketchbooks. alot more mammals rather than just birds. the past few weeks iv been looking for a place to exhibit as its compulsory for my course. pretty scary asking people to look at my work in a gallery enviroment. i hope it goes well. im going to write my artist statement tomorow to go with my work, if i do il post it.

something old

this is a painting a did for my girlfriend last year. i really like it so im going to post it. its oil on lining paper

where did that year go?

so its been almost a year since i last posted. im really terrible at this. im mostly blameing my lack of scanner, but i could easily over come that by going to the library, ahh well. iv got some images of drawings i made at the begining of the project im doing at the moment so im going to stick them up.
suprisingly they are mostly birds.... but my work is focusing on scientific illustration and how removing information can change how they are read and maybe be taken on their aestetic merits. i really need to sit down and try and verbalise what im doing, but i find that thats the hardest part of making work. iv also tried to experiment with mark making, hoping to bring some pattern into the simplicity of the illustrations iv been looking at. iv got a mind map on my wall. i may take a picture of that and put it here so hopefully anyone looking at this will understand it abit better.
